1. It’s Mustache Monday!
Today we start a new series featuring fantastic facial hair, from back in the days when mutton chops made the man. All images are from our Digital Gallery, of course.
Here’s "Black Jack" Burdock, second baseman, who started his baseball career with the Brooklyn Atlantics in 1872 and finished with the Brooklyn Grooms in 1891 (aka the Dodgers). He also happened to have a great mustache.
